There are 52 national parks and nature reserves in the Northern Territory and each one protects a variety of unique environments and native animals.

Spending some time in Darwin will see you learning about the history of Fannie Bay Gaol, Darwin's major prison for almost 100 years from 1883; exploring the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory; viewing saltwater crocodiles in the Top End or taking a trip to Crocodylus Park where you will see some of the largest reptiles on earth!

If you are heading into the outback, take a trip to Ulura-Kata National Park where you can see Uluru/Ayers Rock, Australia's most recognised natural icon. Alice Springs is also worth a visit and has amazing views of the Milky Way, due to the lack of artificial lights.

The largest national park, Kakadu National Park, is home to amazing wildlife and Aboriginal rock art galleries – Ubirr and Nourlangie. During the dry season park rangers give free talks about the rock art, very informative and well worth listening to.

Also in the Australian outback are the Devils Marbles. The marbles are clusters of mysterious rock spheres, formed by millions of years of erosion and the Warumungu (the local Aboriginal people) believe that they are the eggs of the Rainbow Serpent. For those who would like to know more about this legend, there is a short self-guided walking trail to go on.
